my com keeps freezing.

Okaj, so i started my computer from new, and installed Windows Home Premium 32 bit, before i ran with 64 bit and never had any problems, i changed to 32 bit because a friend of mine had a copy lying around and asked me if i wanted it, but since i started it from new i keeps getting freezings everytime i play games or do something that makes the computer work a bit hard..

anyone know what can be the problem s:?

Sounds like memory. 32 bit can use a lot less thatn 64 bit

Bring up task manager, and check memory usage, and free, under the performance tab.

Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
Check back and I will get you some links that you can use for the above

This seems like a lot, but go slow, ask questiions and you will be up and running.

Everything looks OK. I think that I should go back to my original idea ie memory. Those games use a lot of resources and memory is the most important. I think that you have to go back to 64 to have the game operate the way that it should.
64 utilizes memory very efficiently.
